‘How to report economic news’ by Nicola Walton

Categories Member's Books

Everything you wanted to know about economics but were too frightened to

Quantitative easing and forward guidance are regularly mentioned in the
news following the financial crisis of 2007/8, but what do they mean and
why should we care? Nicola Walton, journalist broadcaster and lecturer,
explains in her accessible guide “How to Report Economic News”.

It provides a comprehensive guide to important economic indicators and
also discusses some of the important issues of the day such as
globalisation, the role of the International Monetary Fund and World
Bank and global residential property markets.

Nicola says that as a non-economist, “the book is light on jargon and
aimed at householders, shareholders, journalism and business students,
and anyone else who wants to understand modern economics”.
